Learn RPG Writing and Publishing From Our Very Own Snake Oil Salesman - Mike Nystul!

I will let Mike speak for himself and leave the comments to my readers ;)
As a professional game designer and avid hobbyist with over 25 years of experience I feel that I have a lot to share with others in the gaming community. I have also worked as a teacher and instructor so have the background to develop a curriculum of classes that have something to offer gamers of all levels of experience. 
Here is my initial offering:  
Game Design 101 
Eventually many gamers get the itch to try their hand at creating their very own game. In this class I will cover how to choose your theme, how to choose the mechanics that will best serve that theme, design basics and an introduction on advanced topics such as layout, art direction and publication. All participants will receive a copy of a concise but complete original rpg that illustrates the topics we will discuss.   
Class Length: 3hrs 
Class Fee: $20
Just think of all the wisdom...

  1. it might be worth $20 to ridicule him and disrupt his class for 3 hours

  2. The curriculum consists of a simple timeline of his actions headed with the bold heading "NEVER DO THIS". Pay $20 to learn a career that very few people ever make a living at from a man who's failed miserably in that field.

  3. I fear this may be the example that breaks the cliche. "Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach"

  4. What is with all of these grifters offering to "mentor" people?

  5. I don't see how he plans to build a "curriculum" around "beg for money online, then steal it".

  6. So that's what Tasha's Uncontrollable Hideous Laughter sounds like.

  7. Now, this is the guy who just took the Community for over $30,000.00, is it not?

    Like fractalbat says; That's one way to cast Tasha's Uncontrollable Hideous Laughter . . . and on an entire Community!

    What Mystic Power!

    Wow, that's less than federal minimum wage...$7.25/hr = $21.75. Slightly higher in some states.

  10. We pay AFTER the class, right?

  12. Wow, Kevin, you mean we can use crowd funding with Kickstarter to pay for his class?

    Awesome!
